NO MORE HAIR FALL – I LOVE SOCIAL GATHERINGS NOW
Everyone faces hair fall but when it comes to the point when you feel that your hair is falling more than good and you’ve started looking a little bald from one or the other area of your scalp or head. This hair fall makes you conscious to attend social gatherings, to go to public places where you are not able to come out as a confident person due to your excessive hair fall interfering with your looks and making you look less appealing and confident.
With the modern science and technologies these days, everyone is well aware of the cosmetic procedures done to combat the loss. Hair transplant is one new technology which is like a miracle for people suffering with baldness and Hair fall.
Hair transplantation is a surgical process in which hair follicles are removed from one part of the donor body and are placed in a part of baldness in the recipient’s body. Hair transplantation can also be used to restore chest hair, eyebrows, eyelashes, pubic hair and beard hair and to fill in scars caused by surgery or accidents such as previous facelifts and hair transplants. The most common cause of hair loss is inheritance. Men and women inherit the gene for hair loss from either or both parents. Men are most commonly affected by the inherited gene as the hormone, testosterone, activates the genetic program causing loss of hair follicles. Less common causes of hair loss without inflammation or scarring include the pulling out of hair, certain medications including chemotherapy, HIV/AIDS, hypothyroidism, and malnutrition including iron deficiency. Hair transplantation and skin grafting differ from each other in the terms that many tiny grafts are transplanted rather than a single strip of skin and that the grafts contain almost all the epidermal and dermal layer surrounding the skin.
Current techniques transplant and harvest hair in “follicular units” in their natural groupings, since hair naturally grows in the groupings of 1 to 4 hairs. Thus natural appearance can be achieved by modern hair transplantation by mimicking original hair orientation. Donor hair can be harvested with the help of two different ways: follicular unit extraction (FUE) and strip harvesting.
This hair transplant procedure is famously called follicular unit transplantation (FUT).
WHAT TO EXPECT IN CONSULTATION?
For several days before the surgery the patient prevents from using any medicines which might result in poor grafting and resultant intraoperative bleeding. Smoking and alcohol can contribute to poor graft survival. Post operative antibiotics are commonly prescribed to prevent wound or graft infections. At an initial consultation for hair treatment in Jaipur, the surgeon discusses their expectations, analyses the patient’s scalp and preferences and advises them on the best approach (e.g. single vs. multiple sessions) and give the patient an idea to what results might reasonably be expected.
The postoperative results of newly transplanted hair grafts can be accurately estimated with the help of the preoperative folliscopy by which surgeons get to know the actual existing density of hair. Some patients may also benefit with the vitamins and preoperative topical minoxidil application
To allow seepage of blood and tissue fluid, to be applied and changed at least daily there are modern day advances in wound care which gives the feasibility of semipermeable dressing. Hair treatment in Jaipur is known good for its postoperative results. Any exposure of shampoo and sun is started two days after the surgery and the vulnerable recipient area must be shielded. Some surgeons will have the patient shampoo the day after surgery. To prevent scabs from forming around the hair shaft, shampooing is important. The risk of losing newly transplanted hair follicles during the first 7 to 10 days post-op increases because of scabs which adhere to the new hair.
Some of the transplanted hairs, during the first ten days, may fall out being inevitably traumatized by their relocation. This is referred to as “shock loss”. From the moved follicles after two to three months new hair will begin to grow. Through the next six to nine months, the patient’s hair will grow normally and continue to thicken. Only from untreated areas there is a likely chance of any subsequent hair loss. Some patients tend to plan a subsequent transplant procedure or use medications to retard such loss eventually.
